Teachers of the Gifted as Consultants: Issues to Consider.
This paper offers a broad definition of consultation and examines the role of educators of the gifted as facilitators in the consultation practice. Consultation roles and examples are cited in four areas: organizational consultants, who help individuals within a system learn to work with each other; mental health consultants, who stress altering perceptions of client-related problems; behavioral consultants, who focus on behavioral change based on social learning theory; and advocacy consultants, who are oriented towards reducing injustice and oppression in organizations. Two key aspects of effective consulting are identified: reducing interference and resolving conflicts. A short list of references is included. (CL)
